Mark Ostaszewski threw for one touchdown and ran for another Saturday to send Archbishop Ryan to a 22-7 victory over Archbishop Wood in a Catholic League cross-division game at George Washington. The senior connected with Connor Golden for a 65-yard touchdown in the third quarter and ran a sneak for a 1-yard score in the fourth for Ryan (5-3). Luke Spahits scored the only touchdown, on a 48-yard run, for Wood (6-2), which entered the game ranked fifth in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer.

Before each game, Samir Bullock briefly steps away from his Archbishop Ryan teammates, looks upward, and says a prayer for his late father, Lee. "He was a big influence in my life," the star tailback said. "When he passed, it was really tough. But it gave me motivation to work harder and make him proud. " Bullock did just that on Thanksgiving Day, scoring three touchdowns and eclipsing the 2,000-yard rushing mark for the second straight season in sparking the visiting Raiders to a 28-20 victory over George Washington at Mickey Young Stadium.

Connor Golden didn't think there was anything particularly gutsy about his decision. To an outsider, though, the Archbishop Ryan punter's snap call at the line to fake a punt late in Thursday's 13-7 win at George Washington sure seemed as if it took some fortitude. Especially since he had been intercepted on a fake attempt just a few minutes early. This time, Golden hit Bobby Romano for an 11-yard completion to the Washington 30-yard line, allowing the Raiders (6-5) to continue a drive and bleed a few more precious minutes of clock.

YOU NEVER KNOW what the camera will find. Yesterday, after Archbishop Ryan's Austin Chabot was asked to hold a postgame pose, his smile revealed a black mouthpiece styled with painted-on white fangs. Usually, the 6-6 junior forward plays with unencumbered chompers. However, last week's gruesome injury made that impossible. "When we played Washington on Friday, a kid threw an elbow and my tooth went through my lip, right here," Chabot said, lifting his right upper lip to reveal a gnarled gash.

La Salle's tight end played fullback yesterday. A junior receiver filled in for a full-time defensive back. And a junior linebacker made his first varsity start, as a defensive end. In a 13-0 victory over previously unbeaten and No. 4-ranked Archbishop Ryan, the three substitutes helped put No. 6 La Salle in a very unfamiliar position - atop the Catholic League Northern Division and bound for its first postseason appearance in the 15-year history...

What sports-minded father would not enjoy having a successful basketball player for a son? The father of Archbishop Ryan senior lead guard Ray Ott, at least in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Ott's father, also named Ray, was a football and baseball player during his high school days at Father Judge. The elder Ott wonders why young Ray isn't partial to hitting bodies across a line of scrimmage or hitting shortstops on takeout plays at second base. The way he figures, there is nothing macho about hitting a jump shot.

Kate Ostaszewski yelled, "Dive. " So Vicki Black did. Black, the centerfielder for the Archbishop Ryan softball team, came charging in on a line drive in the bottom of the seventh inning Wednesday at Arcadia University. With runners at the corners, Cardinal O'Hara was looking to tie the score in the Catholic League softball title game. That's when she heard Ostaszewski, who wasn't too far away, from left field. The senior didn't hesitate. "I knew it was a straight line drive," Black said.

The ball was sitting 20 yards from the goal, and Archbishop Ryan senior Miguel Rendon was laser-focused. For all intents and purposes, it seemed as if the striker with the big foot was going to take the free kick. That's what everyone - including the La Salle defense - was thinking, anyway. Instead, he laid it off to sophomore Michael Kirby, whose shot ricocheted off the far right post and into the back of the net. Kirby's goal with a little less than 31/2 minutes to play was the game-winner in Ryan's 2-1 victory over host La Salle on Wednesday in a Catholic League boys' soccer game.

When Brittany Robinson saw teammate Scarlett Walsh thread a ball through the Lansdale Catholic defense and into open space, she told herself it was her turn. Full of adrenaline, the Archbishop Ryan senior collected the ball, put it in the back of the net, and then fell to the ground inside the 18-yard line. She quickly got back up and celebrated with her teammates, who mobbed her, knowing hers was the goal that put the Ragdolls up, 3-1, with less than two minutes to play in the Catholic League girls' soccer final, solidifying what proved to be a 3-1 victory.

If suspense was what the crowd was after Saturday night, Rob King, Justin Gies, and Jeremy Smith ruined the night early. The trio from Father Judge helped the Crusaders jump on rival Archbishop Ryan early en route to a 48-27, Catholic League victory in the grudge match at Northeast High. "That was the mind-set from the first play," said Smith, who transferred to Judge from Ryan this year. "We just had to come out fast and keep our foot on the gas. " The Crusaders (3-1) scored on their first five possessions, which included two touchdown receptions apiece for Gies and Smith, all thrown by King.

A highly anticipated game between two of the most talented teams in the Public League, Northeast and Imhotep, was postponed last week because of excessive heat and now might not be played at all. While several other postponed games were rescheduled for Monday, Imhotep was closed for a Muslim holiday. Mastery North was among other schools closed in observance of the same holiday. A playoff game between Imhotep and Northeast won't occur, either, because Imhotep was reclassified as Class 4A this year, up from 3A last season, and Northeast is now 5A, up from 4A last year.

Face flushed crimson, maroon towel draped and dripping over his head, Archbishop Ryan junior Mike Minniti sat on the bench with bags of ice under each armpit, simultaneously illustrating his impressive efforts and Saturday afternoon's unrelenting heat. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Swiss Army knife of a player did a bit of everything to help the Raiders rough up visiting Lansdale Catholic, 35-0, at Bensalem High. The game, originally scheduled for 1 p.m. at George Washington, was moved to 10 a.m. at Bensalem after the Office of Catholic Education asked the 17 archdiocesan high schools not to play between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday because of excessive-heat warnings.

When Ryan Haney was in seventh grade, he would grab his cleats and two soccer balls and walk from his house to the Archbishop Ryan soccer field. It took roughly 10 minutes for him to get from Knights Road and Chalfont Drive to his destination, a meticulously manicured patch of grass situated behind the school at the top of a hill. Back then, there was no fence surrounding the lines, and the lights hadn't been put up. It wasn't yet named after legendary coach George Todt. Those things would all come later.

WEST CHESTER'S football team opens its season Sept. 3 at Bentley (Waltham, Mass.). The Golden Rams, who went 7-4 last season, have been picked to repeat as East Division champs in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Which means this should be an exciting time, as they get ready to embark on a journey that could bring them more good things. Instead, it has turned into a painfully conflicted time for a group of college student-athletes who suddenly have to deal with a tragedy that seems totally incomprehensible.

Downingtown East coach Mike Matta lost a number of key offensive starters to graduation, including a pair of Division I recruits, a 1,000-yard rusher and a savvy quarterback. But a stalwart defensive line, possibly the best since the program started in 2003, has Matta optimistic about continued success for the Cougars. "We're big up front. We have guys who are really quick off the ball, and there's a good amount of experience there," he said. Coaches realize that defensive line play is often the difference between winning and losing.

You can judge Maggie Balint by the speed of her fastball. You can judge the senior by the way her rise fools batters into swinging when it is out of the zone. You can judge her by the number of strikeouts and wins she has accumulated over the years. It's all impressive, stunning actually. But all of that is just part of the picture, a fraction as to why the righthanded Oregon recruit is the Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania softball player of the year for the third consecutive season.

Pitcher Maggie Balint thought that a coin flip would decide who was the home team for Avon Grove's first-round contest Monday in the PIAA Class 4A state softball tournament. But then the co-captain found out the Red Devils would be the away team against Archbishop Ryan - with no coin toss - for the first time in three weeks. It was no big deal for Balint, an Oregon recruit who said she likes hitting in the top of the inning because she enjoys getting a run right away. And Avon Grove got the jump on Ryan from the start in the game at Arcadia University.
